2 New Two-Star Restaurants

“This year, our inspectors were won over by two restaurants which both enhance their terroir,” said Gwendall Poullenec.

The first is chef Hélène Darroze's Marsan in Paris. "I say bravo to my teams, all those who have worked with me on Marsan but also on the other restaurants," said Darroze. "It is not always an easy job for a woman but you have to live your passion and especially not let it pass," she added, to encourage young women into the industry.

The second is La Merise restaurant in Laubach, by chef Cédric Deckert: "It's a total surprise,", said the chef, visibly moved. "We try to honour our terroir, our local products, our suppliers. I am deeply convinced that the character of a chef is reflected in the plate."
